Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

The wed­ding indus­try is huge and grow­ing, and this means that there are a lot of expe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als com­ing from all dif­fer­ent back­grounds into it. With the advent of the inter­net and dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy com­bined with the demise of print news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines, many expe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­phers have been left look­ing for employ­ment in dif­fer­ent fields.

Many of them turn to the grow­ing wed­ding indus­try, which is see­ing an increase toward larg­er and more extrav­a­gant events. This means that wed­ding ven­dors such as pho­tog­ra­phers, florists, cater­ers, and plan­ners are in high­er demand than ever. This has unde­ni­ably changed the way the aver­age wed­ding pho­tog­ra­ph­er approach­es a wed­ding, and large­ly rais­es stan­dards for the qual­i­ty of wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy.

So how has wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy changed today? The answer is most­ly by the influ­ence of pho­to­jour­nal­ists in the field. Wed­ding pho­to­jour­nal­ists usu­al­ly tend to take action shots of things as they hap­pen, while tra­di­tion­al pro­fes­sion­al wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phers will usu­al­ly arrange and set up his sub­jects into pos­es. This style of pho­tog­ra­phy is fad­ing fast in the indus­try, and the aver­age wed­ding pho­tog­ra­ph­er has been influ­enced great­ly by his pho­to­jour­nal­ist peers. Pho­tog­ra­phers now will usu­al­ly rather let the day’s events unfold nat­u­ral­ly, and cap­ture them as they go by, with­out dic­tat­ing who should stand or sit where and do what.

This style of pho­tog­ra­phy has caught on in the indus­try large­ly because it is sim­ply very dif­fi­cult to cap­ture emo­tion with tra­di­tion­al posed pho­tog­ra­phy, while an indi­vid­ual who is not aware of the cam­era is more like­ly to dis­play that emo­tion.
